1985 Topps, Jeff Jones



#319 Jeff Jones

Here is the second and final card that I was able to get Jeff to sign for me at Target Field a few weeks ago. I love this card. The only thing that would have made it better is if it was signed Jeff "Cheech" Jones. That would have been classic.

Jeff pitched in the Majors for parts of five seasons and all of them were spent with Oakland. He pitched mainly out of the 'pen and his best season was probably his rookie campaign in 1980. That year, he appeared in 35 games and he had a 1-3 record with 5 saves and a 2.84 ERA. For his career, Jeff is 9-9 with 8 saves and a 3.95 ERA.

For those of you with inquiring minds- Yes. Jeff does in fact still rock the 'stache.

I'm just back from vacation so I'm going to try to get caught up commenting. That is one of the best looking autos I've seen in a while. It really pops off the card.

Glad you like it, Brian. Hope you had a good vacation.

BI- he was alright, nothing special. Just the standards "how you doing" type stuff.
